Chillin’ with Adam with Emma McIntosh and Special Guests: The Lovely Marilyn Monroe & Hugh Hefner
Though they never met in person, Hugh Hefner and Marilyn Monroe, whose image graces the cover of the very first issue of Playboy, recently became neighbors at L.A.’s Westwood Village Memorial Park when Hugh’s body was laid to rest next to Marilyn’s.
With Marilyn clinging tightly to one arm, Hugh offered, “This is still very new to me.” When asked how he was enjoying death, Hugh replied, “Just as much as I enjoyed it on earth. It’s really not all that complicated. It’s just about having fun and doing what you love. If you can do that, you’ll be happy no matter where you are.”
I know what women and people and men and everyone always thinks, ‘Oh, he’s just a big old horn dog! I’m not a horn dog, I just appreciated beauty. I just wanted to open people’s eyes and say, “Hey! It’s okay to be sexy and it’s okay to have fantasies and it’s okay to have sex for fun.” I wanted to start a sexual revolution in the minds of America.
America was very restricted. Before the war, believe it or not, there was lot more sexual liberation going on. As soon as we won and the war was over, we started going back to the very restricting values and leading our lives more in function of the church than it was in function of what we wanted. I really wanted to stop that. I wanted to change that. I really believed that we are here on this planet to be liberated and to be free and to have free will. There’s a reason why we have these desires and there’s a reason why we have these fantasies. They’re part of who we are and there’s nothing wrong in exploring them.
I’m very proud of the work I did here. A lot of people say, “Well, you just bought a magazine, but I think I did so much more than that. I opened the discussion of sex. I made the public aware that it is acceptable. It is part of who we are and it’s part of life.”
A proponent of integration, Hugh Hefner employed people of all races when it was still illegal in the United States to serve dinner to blacks and whites in the same room.
“All I saw was talent. I didn’t see skin color. I was one of the first people who had black waitresses and white waitresses and black artists and white artists all working together, mingling together, talking together as equals and I’m very proud of that. It created a lot of controversy. A lot of white people were very angry with me. I had the government against me because they said it was not allowed, apparently by law, when I told them it was bullshit. I didn’t care. I did it anyway. I never understood the racism thing. Never, never, never. I never got it. I’m very proud that I stood my ground and said, “You know what? I don’t care. This is me. This is my business. I do what I want.” I’m very proud of that.
I had a lot of beautiful women around me and I cared for every single one of them, believe it or not. I really did care. It was not just for fun. I really cared about them. I loved them. I did get married. That never seemed to work out for me.
I was all for love. It didn’t matter to me whether it was straight love or gay love or whatever…. bisexual love. Everything went for me. Everything was fine with me. It was about love. I know a lot of people will say, “That’s not the right way to do it, but in heaven everything goes.”
We hope you enjoy this visit with Hugh Hefner, Marilyn Monroe, and three former Playboy cover girls, Farrah Fawcett, Anna Nicole Smith, and Joan Collins. Though Joan Collins is still very much alive, according to Emma, Joan’s Higher Self misses being in the spotlight and she didn’t want to miss a reunion with Hef.
